Many people think depression is about not doing enough or being uncommitted to their goals, however, people who struggle with depression are facing the problem of being over-committed to their goals and failing. When I work with clients dealing with depression the goal is to manage goals and expectations and work on creating small changes that build momentum to larger changes.

Depression can feel like overwhelming sadness, or maybe like you are in a "funk" that you can not get out of. People often start to isolate themselves, and focus on negative thoughts. I offer a warm, safe place to share your feelings, examine your relationships and perceptions that may be contributing to your depression. I introduce concrete suggestions that will help you get your back on track. People frequently feel a sense of relief after sharing their burdens. In discussing experiences people are often able to view themselves differently and gain insight into how they can more effectively deal with situations and relationships.

Johnny was referred by his doctor and his frustrated parents because he was sad and distressed for prolonged periods of time. He had frequent absences and poor grades. He would have angry outbursts and crying episodes. He struggled making friends, would end up in fights and was often in trouble with his teachers. I met with Johnny’s parents, visited his school and observed him in class. I met with him in my playroom and used non-directive play to show I was listening and I cared. Eventually, he opened up and began to talk about his sad feelings behind the anger. He learned how to identify problems and found tools for dealing with them.

We can be depressed for a variety of reasons - disappointment, bereavement, rejection. Ultimately depression requires identification of the cause. If you are dealing with loss and life change counselling is often sufficent. If you are burned out from work or being a caregiver then counselling and self care are both important. If you suffer from longterm depression then there can be a three-fold treatment of selfcare, counselling and medication that can be helpful. Not all depression requires medical intervention but for maybe people it is a helpful part of recovering hope.

Based on clinical research, spending time with animals can help lessen the symptoms of depression-- particularly when combined with counselling. Relationships formed with horses can illustrate to clients the impact that depression is having in their life and relationships. This can both motivate the client to move towards healing and also provide the safety needed to better understand the challenges they are facing and to make movement toward change.

Often prolonged depression or depression that is resistant to medication is not as much a clinical depression as it is a reaction to a series of environmental or interpersonal situations that leave us feeling chronically helpless with low self-worth. This is especially true when the situations happen during childhood. Moving beyond the helplessness often requires medication but more importantly, an opportunity to understand and process those negative situations. Making sense of what we are feeling helps us to put our experiences in perspective, process and release the lingering emotions related to those experiences, and move on towards a happy and productive life.

Depression is one of the most difficult and painful of all human experiences. It robs us of energy, interest and the will to make things better. Much of the basis for depression lies in one's thinking. We will explore thinking patterns and how they impact your emotions. We will investigate new skills such as solving problems, changing thinking patterns, and reactivating your life. We will also create a plan to prevent future episodes, how to recognize depression episodes early, and how to prevent depression from spiralling deeper.

Sometimes depression feels so dark it is hard to get out of bed. Other times it is more like a "heavy cloud" that burdens you with constant negative thoughts and feelings. Sometimes people are haunted by a barrage of critical thoughts like "what's wrong with you", " you always screw up", " if only you were like other people". Counselling helps you change the way you think and feel about yourself so you can approach life with a more hopeful and positive outlook.

I use a Cognitive-Behavioural approach to treating depression, along with a holistic approach of bringing health to the mental, emotional, physical and spiritual realms of a person. Depression affects a person on all these levels and therefore needs to be treated that way. You can expect to learn skills, increase awareness of negative thought patterns and change them, and implement changes to your lifestyle which will help battle depression.

Depression can become a heavy weight, dragging down our energy and coloring our perception of our entire world. Life can even seem pointless, but it doesn’t have to be this way. Counselling can help provide essential therapeutic support to heal symptoms of depression. I provide an open and honest space in which to express your thoughts and feelings, understand the roots of the depression, learn effective coping skills to manage and heal symptoms, and regain feelings of hope and pleasure in living.

Depression is a mood disorder that can cause a persistent feeling of sadness and loss of interest that can interfere with daily functioning. Reaching out for help is a step towards wellness. Symptoms of depression can vary from person to person, but it is a very treatable condition. Therapy for depression helps you overcome the feelings of hopelessness and despair and to gain control of your life.

Depression, ranging from mild to severe, interferes in all areas of daily function. When we’re drained of energy, enjoyment and motivation, we can become caught in a vicious cycle of isolation and worsening or persistent symptoms. Reaching out for assistance is an effective first step in changing this cycle. To take control of depression symptoms, we will make progressive steps for healthy function, learn skills to effectively regulate emotion intensity, and challenge the negative pattern.

I believe depression comes in two forms - medical and situational. At Base Counselling, my goal is to help you determine which depression you are facing and to help you find ways to cope with it. For medical depression, a referral may be the most appropriate thing. For situational depression (or a combination of the two), my approach is to determine where it came from, how it affects you, and what you can do to cope and/or overcome it.

The role of psychotherapy in treating depression is to help the person develop good coping strategies for dealing with everyday stressors. Benefits to be gained from therapy in treating depression include helping reduce stress in your life; it can give you a new perspective on problems with family, friends, or co-workers; it can make it easier to stick to your medical treatment; you can use it to learn how to cope with side effects from depression medication; you learn ways to talk to other people about your condition; it helps catch early signs of clinical depression.

Depression is a state that is usually warranted as a result of the situation that we come across. If we allow ourselves to experience and explore our depressive states, our natural tendency is to move out of this state. My approach to working with depression is not to make clients feel better immediately, but it is to sit in the depressed place with them so we can explore why they are there. Once its explored, experienced, and understood, only then can we move ourselves to health.

Depression is a clinical condition that can impact both your mind and physical abilities. The most recommended treatment method is cognitive behavioural therapy which we use to identify your negative feelings and behaviours so we can replace them with more positive ones. Your depression can be treated with both psychotherapy and medicine along with physical exercise to help alleviate symptoms and improve overall well-being.

Sometimes we find ourselves stuck, with little to no motivation. We might also blame ourselves or others for how we got here. As a psychologist my role isn't to change you, rather it is to help you gain a greater understanding of what is going on. However, this isn't a stopping point. Through greater understanding we might also increase our compassion for ourselves. By giving ourselves some grace and working through the stress and challenges of our lives often we find that motivation to move forward and continue to grow and thrive!

Depression is the common cold of psychology. Like anxiety and stress, depression is quite commonly reported by consumers of psychotherapy. I am experienced, comfortable, and patient with treating depression. I am neither strongly opposed nor strongly supportive of pharmacotherapeutics. I engage an approach that is personal-growth-centered and as independent of the medical model as is possible.

Depression is a serious mental disorder that affects every area of a person's life. It is a regular mode of operation for those who have it, unlike the occasional sadness that everyone experiences from time to time. Depression might be mild, characterized by low energy and a lack of interest, or it might be severe, characterized by violent mood swings and a desire to give up on life. Left untreated, the person suffering depression might contemplate harming themselves. Depression is frequently linked to substance abuse, as it effects the same area of the brain, and sufferers of depression often try to self medicate with drugs or alcohol. At Valiant Recovery, we treat the dual diagnosis of depression and substance abuse in order to care for the whole person.
